Job Description

PSYCHOLOGY, Visiting Assistant Professor, area open, with a preference for clinical or health psychology. The Department of Psychology at Colby College invites applications for a one-year visiting assistant professor position; the area is open though the preference is for candidates in the fields of health or clinical psychology or who study psychopathology in an allied discipline. Teaching responsibilities for this one-year position include introductory and advanced courses in the candidate’s area of training, participation in a team-taught introduction to psychology course, and supervision of student independent research. The ability to contribute to the department’s methodology and statistics offerings is desirable. We are especially interested in candidates who are committed to reproducible science, and who have research interests that would be compatible with and complementary to the current research programs in the department.  We believe the best way to learn the science of psychology is by engaging our faculty and students in a collaborative search for new knowledge about human cognition, emotion, and behavior. To this end, we have a unique curriculum that engages students in research at all levels. The successful candidate will be expected to teach with passion, to be engaged in an active and sustained program of research that contributes to the global effort to advance psychological knowledge, and to involve Colby’s exceptional undergraduates in that research. We are especially interested in candidates who, through their research and/or teaching, will promote diversity, inclusion, and equity at Colby.
